Coral Bay, Western Australia

Coral Bay is a small town on the coast of Western Australia, 1,200 kilometers north of Perth. The main industries are tourism and fishing. The electricity for the town is provided by a wind-diesel hybrid system.

There is only bore water in Coral Bay and it's very salty plus hot, certainly one can't drink it but you can wash the dishes in it! I didn't believe it when a visitor there like ourselves told me, until I tired it.

Ningaloo Reef-Snorkeling and Scuba diving are popular for the holiday maker along with fishing outside the bay.
